gathered to pay their final respects to 15 year old hadiya pendleton. >> good evening, i'm robert jordan. >> i'm jackie bange. dan ponce joins us with tonight's top story: >> it was a very high-profile visit from first lady michelle obama, who attended the funeral along with the state's top leaders and other dignitaries. but none of them spoke during the service. the family wanted the focus to be on hadiya pendleton, who is the current face of gun violence in chicago. and choreography during the nearly three hour funeral service for hadiya pendleton. her casket at front of the greater harvest baptist church on the south side as mourners paid their respects. before the service, first lady michele obama spent about 30 minutes with pendleton's closest friends and relatives. mrs. obama then greeted the other dignitaries and leaders who attended the funeral. >>the most moving part of the service was the five minutes hadiya pendleton's mother spoke to the congregation: >>...you don't know everything, you don't know how hard this really is. and those of you that do no hard this is, i'm sorry
, talking about the parents of hadiya pendleton and talking about the people of nourn. and now we're seeing the president make this plea in chicago. i guess realistically speaking from a political standpoint, how much do events like this accomplish? does it help him make this point? >> as we've seen, and you've watched it up close, the president's strategy is to go directly to the american people. you can't go to the city of chicago, even though you want to talk about opportunities, social programs, mental health services, increase in the minimum wage and all of the rest, you can't go to a place like chicago and not talk about gun violence. so what he's trying to do, i think, is say, look, this is not a rural issue versus an urban issue. this is an american issue. it's just one more way that -- he understands what the political odds are in congress for a ban on assault weapons. he gets that. but this is just one way for him to make the case to the american people to pressure members of congress and lots of them, by the way, as you know are democrats who are in districts where it might not b
has a home here. the 15-year-old hadiya pendleton was killed a mile from where his job is. the connection is very real for him. the gun violence rate is one of the highest in the country. the poverty rate in the south side of chicago where he will be speaking today, where he was once a community organizer, one of the highest in the country. we've been here a couple of days, talking to community organizers. they say the need has never been greater. so when the president comes here, politically the main thing is to give his message from the state of the union and put it on the ground where the people are and where the situations require it and, of course, south side of chicago is a place where urban violence is very much a foot. however, there's going to be the looming question, are you just giving your speech or are you going to make good on the promises here where you call home? a lot of people are so happy to see the president but they will be even more happy if these words turn into actions and help create opportunities for the kids they say will wind up killing themselv
talks about hadiya pendleton who was shot near his former home. this is about 30 minutes. >> it's an on for to welcome president obama home. like every major city, chicago faces two challenges, the strength of our school and the safety of our streets. our streets will only be as safe as our schools are strong, and our families are sound. after decades of debate, our children now have a full school day and a full school year, equal to the measure of their potential. we have created five new high schools, partnered with major tech companies, to educate students. all the way to a community college degree and focus on science and technology and math and engineering. just like the one the president mentioned in new york, in his state of the union address. new york has one, chicago has five, but who's counting? the reforms we have brought to early childhood education and our community colleges and our college to career program, aligned with the president's agenda as he laid it out in the state of the union address. for our children, to live up to their potential, we have to live up to
